This essay on school vouchers was published in the New Oxford Review a Catholic intellectual magazine that deals with politics inside and outside of the Chruch.
The essay suggests that parents and/or the church should pay for the religious portion of parocrial school education while tax financed school vouchers pay for the secular portion of the education.
